that they could empathize with a voter. i think that both of these men, both obama and romney, are a little bit more stiff, a little bit more reserved than the other two, and so i think that they're going to do the best they can. i think that they need to show empathy. i think that ultimately what matters to many voters out there is not only what do you believe, but what do you believe about my situation and to really listen to folks and frankly, to empathize with where they're coming from. >> former south carolina governor mark sanford. thank you for your time today, sir. >> my pleasure. thank you. >>> governor romney enjoying a bibit of a boost in the polls after the debate. a fox news poll showed he jumped three points among likely voter putting him a point ahead of president obama. he got some help in some key swing states as well. can he keep up the momentum? joining us now to break it all down, charlie hurt from the washington times, a columnist for the hill and a fox news contributor and daily beast columnist. welcome to you all. great to have you here today. we'll start with you. this b
can do both. i think romney is doing both and romney -- watching him right now is watching him go through the different phases of romney, 509s shades of romney shall we say. >> that's exactly what they have thought. so people have talked about this a lot. the notion of they were kind of a fork in the road in the spring. do we want to run against him as a flip flopping phony or run against -- coreless, their pitch before, or do we want to cast him as a right wing radical. they seemed to and did make a decision to do right wing radical and one on throughout. i talked about david plouffe about this in may and he said we're going do both when we have to. we're going to say mitt romney there he goes trying to flip flop, coreless a phony, but not forget where he actually is, and then this is -- we're going to keep trying to pin him back to these positions he's taken. i think they have been horrible since the debate, the obama campaign. they are -- jon ward understates the degree to which they are knocked off guard and they are flailing right now and the stuff they're saying, the big bir
, that bet is paying off in a big way. >> mitt romney and his runningmate are both in the swing state of ohio. and romney spoke to a large crowd as you can see there and hammered the president on china, jobby yaegs and the president's proposal, to increase taxes on people who make more than $250,000 a year. >> then of course he says he is going to raise taxes, does anyone really think raising taxes on anyone helps get more people to work. >> no! >> the president's plan is status quo. more of the same. he calls it forward. i call it forewarned. >> paul ryan was also in ohio today. he told voters in that manufacturing state. and it cost the manufacturing jobs. >>> commander-in-chief is getting help from the boss. bruce springsteen will be on the road this week with former president bill clinton campaigning for president obama. the two will be in parma, ohio, thursday, for a free event open to the public. president clinton is expected to speak to the crowd about the economic choice, voters face in the next month election. springsteen draws a crowd, right, there is no word on whether he will be p
romney and his runningmate are both in the swing state of ohio this weekend. romney spoke to a large crowd and hammered the president on china, job creation, and taxes. >> and then, of course, he says he is going to raise taxes, does any one really think raising taxes on anyone helps get more people to work? the president's plan is status quo. more of the same. he calls it forward. i call it forewarned. >> paul ryan was also in ohio today. ryan told voters, in that manufacturing state that the president's china policies have cost the country manufacturing jobs. >>> now, to our continuing coverage of the giants playoff run. the team back in the bay area. back on the field at at & t park this afternoon preparing for the national league championship series. against the saint loop is cardinals. madison baumgartner will take the hill. coming up in a couple minutes. comcast sports net's amy gutierrez will join us from the park with more on how the team is gearing up. >> stanford football was in the national spot laegt today taking on notre dame. rest raunlts in downtown palo alto were pack
, they both say an iranian nuclear weapon is unacceptable, but i tend to think that romney would perhaps give israel the green light to bomb sooner than obama might. this is a question of nuance. i happen to wind up on the dovish side of this issue or at least the relatively dovish side and prefer obama's apparently greater restraint and patience, but i think that's the issue where i see potentially a greater disagreement, even though their beginning statement is the same. but then romney has said he'd be less concerned about a possible israeli strike. i'm quite concerned about that. i think the president is, too. >> indeed. eugene, mitt romney in his speech today suggested that the turmoil in the middle east was because, and i'm quoting him, the president has not led. but when romney's advisers are pressed for answers, they tell "the new york times" to come back on november the 7th after the election. is that leadership? >> well, no. i mean, look, let's be honest, the whole thrust of the speech was to make it sound as if mitt romney's foreign policy would be bolder and more leader-like than
49, romney 47. colorado, obama 49, romney 48. both are dead heats within the margin of error. joining us from washington, democratic strategist marge mcclinton in for juan williams and mary katherine ham. the pugh number, 49-45 surprised me, mary katherine. same with you? >> i was a little surprised at how far it moved. i'm not surprised it's moving in mitt romney's favor. i mean, this was 70 million people watching and the guy who showed up, mitt romney showed up to do that job that night was the best he had ever looked and certainly obama, the worst he ever looked on a stage with someone else, i would say when we have seen him in the situations before. people tuned in those 70 million people thinking they were going to be a colts-packers fight, but they were surprised. i think the amount of that surprise worked in romney's favor. i will point out that the pugh survey is probably a little bit more republican than the electorate will end up being, which is something we've had a lot of discussions about. but i do think some of these number should be frightening to them of we've got 49-
politics. both the romney and the obama campaigns are out stumping tonight. mitt romney and president obama have 50 possible states to fight over. they have nine or so swing states that seem to actually be in play. tonight mitt romney and barack obama are both in just one state. mr. romney appearing with chris christie and rob portman in akron, ohio. the president showing up with will.i.am. >> buckeyes, we need you. we need you fired up. >> ohio is going to elect me the next president of the united states. >> all the interest in competing in ohio, the desperate need to win the election in ohio, the dualing rallies and the ground games, all that comes from the context of a big surprising decision in ohio this afternoon. about how the election is going to be run there this year. back in 2004, the night that the democratic ticket decided not to concede the race on election night because they were waiting on results. part of what was happening in '04 was this. these horrendous epic lines for ohio voters. they waited ten hours and more in ohio in 2004 to cast a vote. es
is on both of them. ryan saying mitt romney's performance makes it more difficult for him. people are suggesting that vice president joe biden is gaffe-ridden and incompetent. what are you expecting from this debate? >> i will go ahead and i would say i'd set the bar pretty high for biden because i think he's a much better debater than obama. one of the reasons biden ended up on the ticket with obama in 2008 was that in 2007 and 2008 running against hillary clinton, running against barack obama, it was biden who are often than not who would steal the show at those democratic debates. it never actually translated into votes for him but he impressed people in the obama campaign as somebody they wanted to have out there. you go farther back in his career when he first ran for president in 1988, he got derailed by a bit of a plagiarism scandal, but when he was using his own words, he was one heck of an orator. that was his reputation. a really strong communicator. i look at biden and his debate skills and communication skills, and i say escapable of doing what barack obama either coul

on the next debate. both governor romney and president obama are doing a lot of preparation for the face off next week. >>shepard: any concern they will take off the spot line in danville? >>reporter: for all the attention that joe biden will come out swinging and paul ryan, the intellectual voice of the republican party and the face of the g.o.p. for the last couple of years, it is difficult in the format to do that. they could be, the candidates will not upstage the vice presidential candidates and they will be seated together at a table. you look at history of debates with the candidate seated next to one another, it is never as feisty. that works for paul ryan who is a real poll work and it works for joe biden because he has much more seniority and experience in the senate as the chairman of the foreign affairs committee and the vice president, who has been dealing with all kinds of major issues the last 3 1/2 years. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. the republican congressman is with us from illinois and the democratic congressman from california is with us, as well. gentleman, nice t

like iran, for example. so i think governor romney was making clear both here, you know, in terms of the domestic audience, and also internationally with respect to the iranians, there's no question we won't allow them to develop nuclear capability and we'll stand by israel to act together. >> greta: he accused president obama about making a political decision about afghanistan, where we've lost over 2,000 troops there, many have come home and died from injuries. i thought that was where he was really the harshest on the president, saying essentially your plan is a political plan. >> the facts bear out what governor romney said. when president obama ordered the surge his commanders on the ground, first of all, asked for more troops, but then they said we need two full fighting seasons. we need to make sure we've completely dismantled the taliban, they can't come. that requires two full fighting seasons. the president came back and said, i won't give you as many troops as you need, but i'll stop the surge, pull the troops out before the second fighting season is done. there's simpl
in romney's favor. last night, the show was all about biden versus biden. so the vice president gave both sides a lot to latch on to. for the democratic base, it was a great performance. biden went out and did exactly what president obama did not do in his first debate. he pressed his opponent. he gave an aggressive performance. for paul ryan, he stood on the stage or sat, in this case, and was able to hold his own against the vice president. >> so keith, do you think that congressman ryan held his own? >> i do not. >> surprise. i knew you were going to -- >> obviously mitt romney did a much better job, i think, last week. i don't think this -- >> let me pause you on that. you think mitt romney did a better job because so many democrats were saying the reason that the president struggled is because he was being hit with untruths and inaccuracies by mitt romney. how did that come as a better job when today you're not hear a lot of hard fact check at least rebuttal on what congressman ryan -- you may disagree with the policy plan but his facts in many cases were not as opposed as mitt romne
